“Great Day to Sail”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We sailed with Captain Mickey last Saturday afternoon, and had a wonderful time. His boat was just the right size for my husband, daughter, and I, and we spent a relaxing afternoon, sailing between the Eau Gallie and Pineda causeways. Captain Mickey was really nice, and let us steer his boat, or, relax where and when we wanted to. He was also really great about scheduling our trip; answering my emails and texts really quickly.
If you've never sailed; this captain and his boat is a perfect way to start. If you have, he'll make you fee right at home.
We'll definitely be back.

“A Wonderful Sailing Adventure!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Captain Mickey really made our nieces' first sailing adventure amazing. Not only did he let the girls each take a turn at driving the boat, but he also took us on the river and let us find dolphins. When we opened up the sails and took to the water more, Mickey taught us about the wind, the sail and how to navigate the waters. When one of our nieces got nervous when the boat keeled, he slowed the pace, steadied the boat back out and took us back to where the girls could regain their comfort level. Most people would not have been as patient and understanding but Micky was amazing. The girls loved their trip and we all agree that it was because of the personal touch by Captain Mickey! If you are in Orlando and plan a trip to Cocoa Beach, you will definitely want to make the drive and contact At The Helm for an amazing day on the water! You won't be sorry!

“Friends and Family Christmas Day Sail”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

I wanted to plan something different and special for my friends and family on Christmas Day. I thought a Christmas meal would be better enjoyed on a beautiful sail boat while enjoying the local wildlife so, after some time on the internet; I contacted Captain Mickey to set up this experience. Our excursion was EVERYTHING we hoped for...FABULOUS Captain, BEAUTIFUL boat, exception weather, great company and excellent food. We will sincerely look forward to sail with At the Helm Sailing Charters in the future. THANKS Captain Mickey for being a part of our Holiday festivities!

“Sailing Lesson”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Spent a great morning learning how to sail and handle Mikes boat. Knowledgable, personable captain. Very relaxed learning atmosphere. Highly recommend whether you want to nust spend time on a boat or learn how to sail it yourself. The Indian River provides an excellent place to sail. My Son, daughter-in-law and I had a great time. Looking forward to learning more next time. Look Mike up and book some time on board, you wont regret it.

“A great treat for Dad's 80th birthday”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

What a treat! Dad a great time and even got to steer for a while. Captain Mickey was relaxed and made the cruise more like a family boat ride than a commercial cruise.

I highly recommend Captain Mickey and his very clean boat for your next adventure.
